Did you have anything specific in mind? I had tried to write a gstreamer0.10
way back to support Nokia N9 (OMAP3630) a few years ago - and eventually gave
up. But nowadays, Android compliance has forced most SoCs to provide
OpenMAX IL, which VLC supports directly.

I know libavcodec slide decoding lacks VP8 support, but I have yet so see real
hardware supporting it. Is there anything else missing on x86?

Do you have any solution or plan to avoid the indirection to gstreamer for
unaccelerated codecs,or more generally when VLC already supports the codec?
